WINEMAKING
Harvested October, 2014 and fermented in large concrete vats, punched down by hand twice daily then pressed after a long, four-week maceration. We then aged it in Nico Velo concrete tanks for 11 months. No racking, no filtration.

WINE PROFILE
Ripe strawberries and raspberries intermingle with a creamy palate from concrete aging over 11 months on gross lees. Gentle tannins and fresh acidity help to carry the very lengthy finish.
